Philly Cheese Steak "Cupcakes"

I have seen all the taco cupcake craze over Pinterest and after having them while I was visiting my family I thought why not turn one of my all time favorites into a "cupcake". I changed things up just a little and was very pleased with the end results. This comes together fast and is a perfect weeknight meal! Of course I didn't add the approximate 1 tablespoon of mayo to Doug's cupcakes, but I definitely  added it to mine and it made the whole thing come together perfectly.
Being by browning ground beef. In a separate pan saute diced onion and green peppers in a little bit of butter till softened. Add some Worcestershire sauce and mayo to the beef. Spray muffin tin generously with cooking spray. Lay one won ton wrap in each tin. If you have picky eaters that will not eat the green peppers or onions, do theirs first. Start with the ground beef, then sprinkle with cheese and repeat by placing another wrap on top of cheese, followed by meat and cheese. If you don't have anyone who will throw a fit if there is onion or peppers in the meat, you can stir in the onions and pepper into the ground beef before assembling them. Bake for about 15 minutes at 375 degrees.
I served these guys with some fries and applesauce for the kids. Trying to offer my suggestions for sides to help my ever lovable sister in case by change I can't answer my phone when she makes this and wants to know what to serve them with :)
